Rose graduated from Humboldt State University in 2009 with a B.S. in Biology, emphasis in Ecology. Directly after graduating, she worked with the California Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in fisheries under two separate graduate student?s projects. The first project was in Prairie and Lost Man creeks, located in the Redwood Creek watershed. This is where Rose began her long relationship with rivers. After, she worked for the US Forest Service conducting geomorphology and riparian vegetation surveys for the purpose of fish habitat monitoring in Oregon, Idaho, and Washington. She also worked for California Fish and Wildlife conducting adult salmonid surveys in major tributaries of Humboldt Bay and Redwood Creek. After five years of fieldwork and being nursed by rivers, it was time to give back. Rose?s current research interests are in modeling how geomorphic and ecological processes affect coho salmon at various life history stages for the purpose of planning, monitoring, and restoration.
